CA – Comics: Antimatter and the Space Between

Authors Charles Glaubitz and Pepe Rojo (Nos Toy) appear at the Athenaeum Art Center on  Saturday August 12th at 6:30 PM.

Comics occupy a fringe space or edge-land, existing between high and low brow, image and text, and the individually or collectively created. This (in) between space affords comics the possibility of experimentation while simultaneously allowing the art form to consolidate itself as the seed bank of corporate entertainment.

SF – Wonder Woman: Warbringer Signing

Author Leigh Bardugo (Grisha Trilogy, Six of Crows) appears at Books Inc. on Wednesday, August 30th at 6:30 PM to discuss and sign Wonder Woman: Warbringer!

Press Release:

Not Your Mother’s Book Club very excitedly presents #1 New York Times-bestselling and USA Today bestselling author Leigh Bardugo for a special event in celebration of the first book in the DC Icons Series, Wonder Woman: Warbringer!

Please Note: This is a ticketed event. Ticket includes a copy of Wonder Woman: Warbringer and refreshments.

About Wonder Woman: Warbringer: The highly anticipated, entirely new coming-of-age story for the world’s greatest super hero: WONDER WOMAN by the # 1 New York Times-bestselling author LEIGH BARDUGO.

She will become one of the world’s greatest heroes: WONDER WOMAN. But first she is Diana, Princess of the Amazons. And her fight is just beginning. . . .

Diana longs to prove herself to her legendary warrior sisters. But when the opportunity finally comes, she throws away her chance at glory and breaks Amazon law–risking exile–to save a mere mortal. Even worse, Alia Keralis is no ordinary girl and with this single brave act, Diana may have doomed the world.

Alia just wanted to escape her overprotective brother with a semester at sea. She doesn’t know she is being hunted. When a bomb detonates aboard her ship, Alia is rescued by a mysterious girl of extraordinary strength and forced to confront a horrible truth: Alia is a Warbringer–a direct descendant of the infamous Helen of Troy, fated to bring about an age of bloodshed and misery.

Together, Diana and Alia will face an army of enemies–mortal and divine–determined to either destroy or possess the Warbringer. If they have any hope of saving both their worlds, they will have to stand side by side against the tide of war.
